Questions & Answers

Q:Hi, does the open jaw cutter squash the cable strands out of round compared to a handcuff style cutter? The material is soft drawn copper with super fine stranding. Thanks in advance.

Answer This Question

A:  The cable cutters feature the same cutting action. The open-jaw design is for tight applications where the ‘handcuff’ style jaws will not fit.

      Good Cutters
      Great for working inside mcc cabinets The release does stick a little a lot easier to use then the hand cuff style

        Solid, but sticks sometimes
        Solid cable cutter, I like that it has the blade mechanism like a pair of loppers (not the handcuff style) so much easier to use. Also goes up to 750 mcm, covers all my needs. only downside is that the spring open mechanism needs some help popping back open sometimes. not a big deal, but that's why i gave it 4 starts instead of 5
